DISA grants provisional authorization at data impact level 4 to Adobe
The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Authorizing Official granted a one-year Department of Defense (DOD) Provisional Authorization (PA) with conditions to the Adobe Experience Manager for Managed Services (AEMMS). The AEMMS offers an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) for systems hosting Impact Level 4 data.
The AEMMS system supports moderate confidentiality, moderate integrity, and customer-defined availability (MMx) in a government community cloud. It is a managed application that provides a web content management solution running in Amazon Web Services (AWS) GovCloud computing infrastructure.
The AEMMS is composed of two systems: a single Adobe Management Services Command and Control (AMSCC) environment and the AEMMS.
A DOD PA is an initial approval of the cloud service provider’s cloud service offering package by DISA. The DOD PA provides DOD customers or mission owners the leverage needed to grant an Authority to Operate (ATO) for the acquisition and use of the cloud service offering at the defined impact level.
A DOD PA does not constitute endorsement by DISA or DOD of the suitability of the cloud service offering for any particular requirement, nor does it replace or eliminate the requirement for mission owners to issue an authorization for their acquisition and implementation of the cloud service offering.
